Our guild, Rogaland Quiltelag, meets once a month. A part of our meetings, as of so many other guilds, is the raffle that finishes our evening together. The guild will purchase prizes from whatever shop that is present at the meeting, add some from the prize stash, and guild members who have previously won will also bring prizes. I always buy 5 tickets with 10 numbers on each; sometimes I win, but most times I don’t.
Without knowing the number of tickets sold that evening, I cannot tell you what the odds are that I would win anything at all, but I can tell you that those odds worked in my favour leaving my hand raised embarrassingly often.
Not a bad way to feed my stash I’d say.
I also won an issue of the magazine, Quiltemagasinet, and when opening it, I realized that it was the very issue in which the first article about me and my work was. Talk about meant to be.
I have recently re-joined the board of the guild, so I’m planning to do some posts about guild business - both to share my ideas and hear yours – and since we are on the topic of raffles, how do the raffles in your guilds and groups work?
